George P. Bush keynote speaker
for 93rd Annual Chamber Banquet
George Prescott Bush will be taking the stage at the Seguin Coliseum on Wednesday, Sept. 25, for the 93rd Annual Banquet of the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce.
" I enjoyed hearing George P. Bush speak at the 47th Annual Texas Legislative Conference in March," said Lisa Dudley, Chair-Elect of the Chamber Board of Directors. "I immediately knew that I wanted him to speak at our annual banquet. He delivered an inspirational speech which included his experiences during his entrepreneurial endeavors and his desire to continue to improve the educational opportunities for our children.
"His positive outlook on the future of the State of Texas and its citizens is one that the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce is happy to give everyone the opportunity to hear."
George P. Bush is part of the next generation of Texas leaders. He is a successful businessman, philanthropist, civic leader and veteran dedicated to advancing conservative values.
While many know him as grandson of President George H.W. Bush, son of former Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush, George P. is a native-born Texan and leader with strong convictions and fresh perspectives. Bush earned his undergraduate degree from Rice University and went on to teach at-risk students at Homestead High School in Florida’s Miami-Dade Independent School District.
In 2000, Bush entered the University of Texas School of Law where he received his Juris Doctorate.
After his clerkship for federal Judge Sidney Allen Fitzwater, Bush joined one of the nation’s largest and most prestigious law firms, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP. He later co-founded Pennybacker Capital LLC, a real estate private equity firm and most recently, Bush founded St. Augustine Partners LLC, a Fort Worth-based investment firm focused on energy and business consulting.
In 2006, Mr. Bush joined the U.S. Naval Reserve through the Direct Commission Officer program. In 2010, he began an eight-month tour of duty in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom under the Special Operations Command. Among other service decorations, he was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal for his meritorious service. Committed to helping his community and the state of Texas, Mr. Bush organized efforts to expand Big Brothers Big Sisters in North Texas and serves as the co-chairman of the Dallas/Fort Worth Celebration of Reading.
He is currently the Tarrant County chairman for Uplift Education-a highly successful Dallas-based public charter network focused on closing the achievement gap in inner-city public schools. He also serves on the Board of Trustees for the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin.
Currently, he lives in Fort Worth with his wife of 8 years, Amanda, who is an attorney and partner at Jackson Walker, LLP. They are expecting their first child this summer.
